    Description

    We would welcome your skills and help with our house and garden.
    Housework: cleaning and laundry in our house
    Skills needed joinery and other building skills, chainsaw, fence building, gardening,
    Gardening - maintaining our vegetable garden and to manage all the flowers and shrubs already growing there - the more skilled you are the better so I can leave you to get on with this.
    General: building, general maintenance, grass cutting, painting

    On Canna there is a population of around 24 people and my family are from this island.
    The nearest point on the mainland is Mallaig where you get the ferry from and the nearest town is Fort William.
    There is a small cafe/bar in the summer and a community shop and we have a great harbour with lots of visiting boats and yachts.
    Canna is a great place for wildlife, birdwatching, fishing, kayaking and having a great time in the hebrides.
